3:03 am
today. steve: fantastic. abby: we are jealous. i have been following your adorable instagram photos, giving us a tour of the town. give us a sense of what is coming up on the show today. >> so we were with nigel farage yesterday. he took us around loan done so we could see all the famous site the churchill war rooms the london eye, westminster abby. he will take us on a tour of his favorite pub when he is in parliament and they vote. they used to you go there and drink and the bell would ring to tell them to go back in to vote. he is going to take us on the tour. how to become a brit because meghan has to learn a lot as she is joining the royal family. we got fitted for hats. very special day yesterday and we will show it to you. steve hilton will be here as well. >> this is a big thursday on "fox & friends." >> we cannot wait. all right, ainsley, thank you very much. that sounds great. abby: brian, i feel like you would be a terrible brit.
3:04 am
brian: that's true. they have rejected. me. that's why i have fought so hard for my freedom. steve: from where? brian: from the mother land. and the mother ship back together. >> let's talk about the mueller probe because it's been nine seconds and we haven't yet. rudy giuliani was with laura ingraham last night and joining us again today. at which time he is basically telling robert mueller, among other things, before i sit down with you, tell me what you have. tell us what you need and tell us why it's necessary for you to sit down with the president. you have at this for year. i know corey lewandowski saying the same thing as rudy for the first time on a consistent basis the trump administration is on offense. they are basically saying it's been a year. got to spend almost $20 million. including huge salaries and office space, end this thing now and before i sit down, let me know what you need. i think if i'm president trump, i feel good about that. >> that's their strategy to say hey, come on, robert
3:05 am
mueller, it has been a year. but here's the important thing. where is this going to go? we don't know there have been predictions that he would wrap up his investigation by early summer. now they are bringing in other people to reinterview them. they are also having some witnesses come and sit before a grand jury. but ultimately what it comes down to is will the special counsel do anything regarding the president of the united states and rudy made it very clear. he said exactly what we have been saying on this program, it's a long standing department of justice guideline. you cannot indict a sitting president. you can impeach him, but that's the house of representatives. all robert mueller could do is send a report to the house. listen. >> the same reason they can't indict him. they can't issue a subpoena to him. remember, clinton opposed the subpoena. and then he voluntarily complied. he didn't give up presidential prerogative. and then if the administration wrote a memo saying they can't do that. >> i think they have the facts from which they can
3:06 am
write their report. if you can write a fair report, fine, write it. if you will write a unfair report write it and we'll combat it we are ready to rip it apart. abby: that was huge news yesterday and totally changes as least as of now the narrative of this investigation at the same time as you mentioned you have this huge "new york times" story that broke yesterday. talking about ultimately the beginning days before the election even began. brian: crossfire hurricane. abby: spying that took place they called it eavesdrops. ig report came out. they said this is the "new york times" way of trying to soften the blow of what will ultimately be revealed. brian: andy mccarthy one of the finest prosecutors around who speaks in a way most of us can understand, is he going to be talking about the informant. kind of burying this story that might have been nestled in to the trump campaign to find out additional information. they outlined the whole project around 4 trump campaign workers. one was mike flynn. one is carter page, one is
3:07 am
papadopoulos, and i forgot hot fourth was. they just look at these four. carter page emerges as the most interesting. they pursue that direction. who was the informant inside the trump campaign? i'm going to see what andrew mccarthy thinks about that. abby: we have rudy giuliani on in the 7:00 hour brian bine by the way manafort was the fourth. abby: i knew you would get it at some point, brian. we have giuliani on. it will be interesting to hear what he has to say this morning. big day in washington. an issue is he very passionate about. talking about sanctuary cities. he invited a bunch of local officials that are fighting sanctuary cities there in california to sort of speak at this round table as you can see and give their perspective of how they are feeling things are going in that state and you listen to some of them. one a local mayor of a town talks about being an illegal himself and how they feel more unsafe than they ever have and how if anything sanctuary cities are taking away people's ability to live the american dream. steve: that immigrant you
3:08 am
are referring to is one of the people included in this montage that we are watching right here. >> thank you, mr. president. i'm a proud immigrant here from lebanon. >> i came here to live the american dream and we did well. jerry brown wants to take this american dream from us. when jerry brown cares more about illegal criminals than he cares about the hispanic community and the american citizens, this is insanity and this is unconstitutional. when i swore to be a citizen and again as mayor, i swore to defend the constitution and to keep my community safe. this is personal to me. >> i'm sitting here in this room in awe of god's power, how he can take someone who was homeless in a tent, make them the mayor in the city, and bring them before the president of the united states of america who wants to hear the cry of our people and that's what's going on. >> our people are the ones
3:09 am
hurting. >> i have been in office in california for five years. not once has governor brown invited any republicans to discuss this issue in california. and it is a crisis. that's the point we are at in california is a crisis. steve: right. remember, president trump's department of justice is suing the state of california over their sanctuary city law that essentially has made the entire state a sanctuary state. jerry brown himself, the governor, tweeted this out regarding the round table he said president trump is lying on immigration, lying about crime, and lying about the laws of california. flying in a dozen republican politicians to flatter him and praise his reckless policies changes nothing. we, the citizens of the fifth largest economy in the world are not impressed. brian: there is at lo of towns joining a lawsuit suing governor brown without president trump's support. the federal government behind it but they were doing it because of it and because of his policies. they also called out the president for using the term animals. he wasn't talking about illegal immigrants being animals he was talking about
3:10 am
ms-13. he also baited governor brown. he said i understand is he out thereof soon. i also understanding he might run for president. please run for president, i would love to run against you. abby: wouldn't that be interesting? what the president really doing giving these people a voice. letting them speak. it's their state, too. they may not be governor but they certainly have a right to speak their mind and hopefully have an impact on the laws that continue to be passed there. a lot going on today. let's go over to jillian for some headline us. jillian: good thursday morning to you guys and to you at home as well. overnight tensions escalating on the israeli-gaza border. israel launching more airstrikes hitting seven targets in gaza. the attacks in response to machine gun's fire across the border that hit homes in stair wrote. the bullets lodged into windows. nobody though was hurt. fiery explosion rocking a gas plant in oklahoma overnight. look at incredible video shows the flames and plumes of smoke that could be seen for miles.
3:11 am
at least 75 employees were inside the plants at the time but no one was hurt. investigators believe something inside overheated sparking the blast. president trump's pick to lead the cia now headed to a full senate confirmation vote. the senate intelligence committee approving gina haspel's nomination after grilling her over the agency's enhanced interrogation practice. she is expected to win nomination as five democrats now publicly support her nomination. the vote could happen as early as today. and first lady melania trump giving personal update on her health. tweeting a sincere thank you to walter reed medical unit and all who have cents good wishes and prayers. i'm feeling great and looking forward to getting back home to the white house soon. she underwent to procedure monday to treat a benign kidney position. thoughts and prayers. steve: sounds like she will be coming home in the next day or two. brian: that was one thing that didn't leak out. she with no idea she was
3:12 am
going to the hospital. i didn't hear any rumors about it next thing you know she is in the hospital. abby: that's a good point. one of the few things that hasn't been leaked out. steve: no kidding. meanwhile, straight ahead on this thursday the "new york times" has posted this headline will thor begins of the trump administration code name crossfire hurricane. but they may have buried the lead. did they just confirm that james comey's fbi spied on the trump campaign? we're going to talk about that. abby: plus this college graduate is going out with a bang posing with her rifle on campus. you can see it right there. the message, come and take it she is going to join us live later on in the show ♪ this time, baby, i will bullet proof ♪

3:16 am
brian: get. this take a element no. the "new york times" posting this report aboutor gyps of the trump administration but in many cases i feel as though they buried the lead. did they actually confirm that james comey's fbi spied on the trump campaign with an embed informant this is from the article one government informant met several times with mr. page and mr. papadopoulos current and former officials said that is becoming a politically contentious point and many of president trump's allies whether the fbi was spying on the trump trup
3:17 am
campaign or tryin try entrap campaign officials. editor of the national review and hopefully a fox news contributor soon, andy first off, am i wrong or are we wrong to point out this line buried in the middle of the story at least one government informant met several times with page and papadopoulos? did they actually put someone under cover to try to bring these guys out? >> they did, brian. i have written a couple of columns in the last week or so pointing out that there is probably no doubt that they had at least one confidential informant in the campaign and going carefully through the strzok and page text to show that they obviously opened an investigation late july, early august of 2016 in which they met with at least someone from a foreign government in connection with an investigation -- with this investigation in england.
3:18 am
what we now know from the "times" article that's all true, but the lead that they buried the word that you almost never see in the "times" 4,000 whatever word it is counter intelligence. what happened here is they did not have a criminal predicate to open an investigation on trump as they had an immense predicate to conduct on president clinton. they used powers covertly to investigate the trump campaign during the stretch run of the campaign under circumstances where they did not have evidence that anyone had actually committed a crime. brian: so, counter intelligence is a word they conveniently left out. >> they keep telling you in the investigation what they want you to come away with is they were very public about the investigation of clinton but they kept the trump thing hush-hush. the trump thing was a
3:19 am
counter intelligence investigation. it's classified. if they had been speaking about it, they would have been committing a crime. now, it's perfectly appropriate to criticize the fbi for going public with their evidence against mrs. clinton under circumstances where they didn't charge her, you are not supposed to speak if you don't charge. that has goin nothing to do wher they are allowed to talk about a counter intelligence investigation. what people need to look here at is they didn't have a criminal predicate to investigate the people in the trump campaign they did and they used their counter intelligence powers as a pretext to investigate the trump campaign in hope of making a criminal case. brian: and they tried to paint it as they are being so measured and if anything they were leaning towards the trump campaign. they didn't want to bring anything out. and they could have been more aggressive. do you come to the same conclusion? >> no. i think if you want it to be measured here, what you say is we have a lot of evidence here that russia is trying
3:20 am
to interfere with the campaign and, therefore, we should be very aggressive investigating russia, which, evidently they weren't. but we have virtually no evidence here tying the trump campaign to any espionage by russia so we should be measured and hands off until that kind of evidence develops and i don't think it ever did. brian: the i.g report is coming out does that have everything to do with why this came out today? >> i wouldn't say they are unrelated but i think there are probably a lot of reasons why this came out. brian: they are looking to get their story out ahead of time like lisa page may be resign you had ahead of time before this came out so she doesn't get fired, perhaps like andy mccabe. fascinating what's going to be coming down. i hope people are paying attention. andy mccarthy, thanks so much for breaking it down for us. >> thanks, brian. brian: this college graduate is going out with a bang posing with rifle on message the message is basically come and take it she will

abby: good morning. welcome back with quick headlines for you. the senate voting to keep obama era net neutrality rules. blocking sites and charming customers more for certain content. the trump administration calls it overregulation. the bill is unlikely to survive in the house. but, one bill that has passed the house, a measure to stephan penalties for anyone who attacks police. to protect and serve act of 2018 would make intentionally assaulting an officer carry a penalty of up to 10 years in prison. if the officer dies or is kidnapped that's life in prison. senators are mulling their
3:25 am
own version of that bill. steve, take it away. steve: thanks, abby. college grad right there going out with a bang. kent state graduate caitlin bennett posing for photos on campus with an ar-10 rifle and her cap which read come and take it she tweeted the photo saying now that i graduated from kent state, i can finally arm myself on campus. i should have been able to do so as a student, especially since four unarmed students were shot and killed by the government on this campus. #campus carry now. well, the photo went viral online and kent state university graduate kaitlin bennett joins us now from canton. >> thanks for having me. steve: why did you want to take a picture? >> i the policies kent state has regarding arming the students. it was unacceptable for them to let guests carry but not students. it doesn't make sense to me.
3:26 am
steve: according to kent state website the university has rules against students, faculty and staff carrying any deadly weapons. what's your problem with that? >> my problem is that it's kind of insinuating that they care more about the lives of their guests than the lives of their students that spend four or more years on that campus. if guests can arm and protect themselves, i should be able to as well. steve: i know have you graduated so this is just a hypothetical question. why did you want to carry a gun on campus? >> simply to express my second amendment right. also i'm the founder of a club on kent state campus liberty hangout. and we were doing an event where we just opened a discussion to people to come talk to us about gun rights. and my cameraman got assault you had. if we had a firearm present on us, open carry, i definitely believe that wouldn't have happened.
3:27 am
steve: what's the reaction been like? >> it's been crazy. i was not expecting the blatant racism that's been thrown at me. the right out death threats. steve: what kind of racism? >> so they are saying that i have white privilege for going out on campus with my ar-10. they are saying this all has to do with me being white that i was able to do this. i think that's very insulting to minorities. i don't think that anything bad would happen to them. i actually had a black police officer with me the whole time that was just -- he loved it. so, you know, it's just insulting. steve: so the reason you did not get in trouble where you are carrying that ar-10 is because you had graduated the day before. had you been a student, you would have, what, been arrested or gotten a talking to? >> yeah. so i would have been going against student conducts and i can't even imagine what would have happened to me.
3:28 am
steve: so the online reaction, that percentage has been positive and what percentage has called you the world's worst person? >> it's so hard to say because, you know, there is a tweet going around about, you know, me being a school shooter with 500,000 likes on it but, you know, like i said, my inbox is blowing up. i don't know how many messages i have but, you know, i would say most of it is good. steve: would you do it again? >> i would do it again and i wish that i could do it with a fully automatic machine gun and i think those should be legal and if i could, i would absolutely do it again. steve: caitlin, what are you going to do now that you graduated? >> well, luckily because of all of this media attention blue target firearms in ohio reached out to me and offered me a job. i think that's amazing. i'm going to continue my political activism on campus since i will be living in the area. but this time i will be able to be armed. steve: look at that she just
3:29 am
graduated from kent state. caitlin bennett. thank you very much for sharing your story today. >> thank you. steve: what do you think about that? email us at or tweet us or facebook us. remember this ad we showed you yesterday? >> we have our bus tour ready to go, but it's not going to be one of those pansy political bus tours. we have the deportation bulls. steve: we showed you that yesterday and that's when youtube called that ad hate speech and took it down. this morning, the candidate firing back. and it's the audio clip driving the internet and all of us crazy. >> laurel. laurel. laurel. steve: i still hear laurel but a lot of you listening right now heard yanny. the people who created it suddenly the debate once and for all. you are going to want to hear that happy birthday to bob sago saget.

3:34 am
analogy, okay? there are optical allusions the famous one where you either say a vase or two vases facing each other. it's one or the other. like with the vase or two faces and sometimes you can can't control it. your brain takes over. and it makes you go in one direction or the other. in fact you can signal and lower the whole frequency and it will be much more yanny like. if you raise the frequency it will be much more laurel. it happens to be that sweet spot where it's ambiguous and it's about half and half. steve: scientists say it depends on which one you hear depends on the frequencies that your brain emphasizes. now we know the back story. it was one week ago today that katie heights zell a freshman in georgia was working on vocab words. she went online and she wanted to play back on the word
3:35 am
laurel. so she pushes the button and instead of laurel she hears yanny. she called over some classmates and they said well, i hear laurel. i hear yanny. everybody heard something differential. she posted it to her instagram story. it has gone completely viral. nonetheless, it also depends the experts say on what you hear it on it could be the speakers or head phones. abby: i heard it could be your age. other students are taking credit. they said they are the first ones that ultimately. brian: when was that clip from the 5:00 a.m. show? steve: yeah. brian: you know the rule if we use any of jillian's clips, 20 bucks. jillian: oh. gladly. i will buy coffee. steve: is it $20 per clip? the show open had about 10 clips. brian: did we use any of jillians? jillian: okay. thank you. i can place coffee in for
3:36 am
everybody. brian: i have to go in and make a withdraw. while you are reading. jillian: make sure you are aware of, this man ambushes police officers spraying bullets through the air with an assault rifle. the tense moments caught on surveillance video in indiana. screams and gunshots also heard on an officer's body camera. [screams] [gunfire] police say gunman berry freeman killed his neighbor and waited to ambush them. freeman was shot and killed by a swat officer. remember this campaign ad we showed you yesterday from a republican running for governor of georgia? >> we have got the deportation bus. we're going to implement my 287 g deportation plan that's going to fill this bus with illegals to send them back where they came from. jillian: youtube thought that was hate speech and briefly took it down.
3:37 am
the candidate state senator michael williams says it's another example of a liberal company shutting down conservative thoughts. >> we have supporters not just here in georgia but all over the country. people that love the first amendment that love our conservative values. they reached out to youtube and said put that video back up and they caved and put it back up. jillian: a youtube spokesperson tells fox news, quote: with the massive volume of videos an our platform sometimes we make the wrong call on content that is flagged by our community. a school board member facing calls to resign after dash cam video shows her in a confrontation with a cop after getting pulled over for speeding even making what some are saying racist remarks at him. listen. >> i'm on the school board. i'm a community member of this town. i'm sorry if i was speeding. >> yes, you were speeding that's why i'm stopping you. you were doing 37 in a 25. >> and i'm scared of cops because you guys hurt black people. >> ma'am the ticket is

the day after chemo might mean a trip back to the doctor's office, just for a shot. but why go back there, when you can stay home, with neulasta onpro? strong chemo can put you at risk of serious infection, which could lead to hospitalizations. in a key study, neulasta reduced the risk of infection from 17% to 1%, a 94% decrease. applied the day of chemo, neulasta onpro is designed to deliver neulasta the next day, so you can stay home. neulasta is for certain cancer patients receiving strong chemotherapy. do not take neulasta if you're allergic to neulasta or neupogen (filgrastim). ruptured spleen, sometimes fatal as well as serious lung problems, allergic reactions, kidney injuries, and capillary leak syndrome have occurred. report abdominal or shoulder tip pain, trouble breathing or allergic reactions to your doctor right away. in patients with sickle cell disorders, serious, sometimes fatal crises can occur.

3:46 am
unfair report write it and we'll combat it we are ready to rip it apart. abby: hear to weigh in fox news judicial analyst judge andrew napolitano. judge: it's been more than a year. he was appointed a year ago today. the investigation began in october of 16. so we're close to approaching two years on this. abby: unbelievable. what do you make probably the biggest news from yesterday coming from giuliani and trump's legal team that he will not be indicted? >> i don't know what bob mueller told rudy giuliani but there are actually two memos and the doj one says the president can be indicted and the other says the president cannot be indicted. when bill clinton pleaded guilty to lying under oath, they waived in front of him an indictment saying do you want us to bring this to a grand jury he said no, i will plead to an information. an information looks like an indictment but it doesn't involve the grand jury and it means the defendant agreed to it. so when general flynn and george papadopoulos and alexander pleaded guilty to
3:47 am
their crimes it was through an information that didn't involve a grand jury. can they do that with the president? they did it with bill clinton. steve: giuliani says the mueller team says, you know, long standing department of justice guidelines say you cannot indict sitting president. he has to be impeached first. and that's a political by the house of representatives. >> correct. correct that it is a political decision by the house u right now the house is controlled by republicans. that may stay the same after november or it may change. but there is another doj memo as i mentioned to you, they are both circa clinton. they are both late 90s that says the president can be indicted but not prosecuted until after he leaves office. you might have to indict him to stop the run flght statute of limitations. the time period during which the prosecution must commence or be waived. brian: so do you think this offense will be effective where corey lewandowski, rudy giuliani, everybody, i'm sure jay sekulow because

4:02 am
us. >> nice to be with you as always. brian: first off on some of the things i revealed last night. when you were sitting down with robert mueller and others he made it clear to you it was robert mueller when he said we don't believe we can indict a sitting president. was he trying to get your guard down as if what are you afraid of, guys? just bring him in? >> i don't think so. it came up this way. i asked him specifically if they realized or acknowledged they didn't have the power to indict. both under the justice department memo, which gives them their power, in essence confines their power and under the constitution. he said well, he wouldn't answer. and one of his assistants said they acknowledged they had to be bound by justice department policies. then the next day or the day after, they clarified it for jay sekulow who was with me at the meeting that they didn't have the power to indict, that what they would eventually do is write a
4:03 am
memorandum and give it to the deputy attorney general rosenstein. and we never got to the issue of subpoena. i think he had raised that earlier with john dowd, but it didn't come up with me. we are pretty comfortable that in the circumstances of this case, they wouldn't be able to subpoena him personally. brian: really? >> well, there is no supreme court decision that really is right on point. there are several decisions around it for example, they could probably require documents to be produced. that's what was required of nixon. and we have produced 1.4 million documents. they could probably require to you testify in a civil case. possibly even as a witness in a criminal case. but they can't require to you testify in what would be your own case because, after all, it's all about a possible impeachment, impeachment has to come before indictment. and that's a law not just in the united states, that's the law that governs most heads of state in the world.
4:04 am
steve: so, essentially, your team is saying hey, mr. mueller, you cannot subpoena him to get him to come and talk to you because that would violate article 2 of the constitution and executive privilege so it's a no, right? >> well, also, it would violate the justice department policies and he is specifically appointed under those policies. he has to follow those. so we could go to court and challenge anything that he did that was violative of those policies. he is being challenged by manafort, it looks like successfully, to produce his authorization to indict manafort. that's not clear that he hasn't. so i i don't think he wants to battle with us over that there is a narrow set of circumstances. have you got to understand the president wants to testify, wants to give his side of the case which he believes is the truthful one. he keeps saying to me i never talked to any russians. i had nothing to do with any russians. what is this nonsense about russians and about obstruction of justice what he says very simply is i'm
4:05 am
just expressing my opinion. i can't say that comey is doing a bad job. i'm obstructing justice. if i decide the director of the fbi is doing a bad job. that's ridiculous. so, he wants to express that now, on mueller's side, everything he says, they believe they can examine his motives. so, if they had an open mind, we would be inclined maybe to let our client do what he wants to do. abby: what do you think happens to james comey. have you been critical of him about leaking memos. you say he needs to be personally investigated. where do you think that goes? >> i don't know how can you fire fbi agents for leaking less sensitive things and not fire him for leaking a memo that he has variously classified as an fbi document. his own personal document. first of all, nothing is his personal document when he is director of the fbi and he is sitting down and trying to memorialize a meeting with the president of the united states. give me a break, comey. i mean, each you can't stretch the truth that far. did you go pretty far but
4:06 am
you can't stretch it that far. i mean, this whole -- i mean, i think the investigation should be thrown out because it all began with an illegal act. comey's leaking of the memo to the professor hot house now wants to find outline all the circumstances. going to be a pretty slimy situation. i would like to know how often comey leaked in other circumstances, too. brian: just think if you are so comfortable doing and it he said it and then we find out the guy had special fbi clearance, mr. mayor, when we judge napolitano here and you guys go way back to old italy and rivalries with your families only kidding. [laughter] , he says listen, i love rudy but is he making a mistake poking the bear by telling mueller to wrap it up. you don't want to grab the tiger. you don't want to aggravate him because they make your life miserable. have you examined your tactics and thought about maybe the backlash? >> somebody has to defend the president. and that's my job. and if he wants to get angry, get angry at me, not the president.
4:07 am
i'm the one doing it the reality is that's my job. my job is not to, you know, lean over and let him beat the hell out of us. that's what was going on before i got here. it's my job to make the case for the president of the united states. i'm very proud of that. and i think it's very different now than it was a couple weeks ago. sings i got involved and rafkins and jay. we are one team now and doing what the president wants and fighting back. look, they are professionals. if they are not, a remedy can be in court. i mean, all they can do is write a report. steve: right. >> so how bad that is we can deal with that we with write it, too. abby: can you think of any scenario where the president would sit down with mueller. >> absolutely. sure. it depends on if they're willing to be reasonable. we have written them five letters. three when john dowd was in charge. two sinels i came aboard asking for things we would need it decide every lawyer

4:09 am
with page and papadopoulos, current and former officials said. that has become politically contentious point with trump's allies questioning whether the fbi was spying on the trump campaign or not. this was buried in a 4,000 page story. but what i just read to you, what is your stand on that? does that change anything? >> well, it would change a lot of things. i mean, first of all, we're going to have to look into it as a result of "times" article. thank you, "new york times." they usually don't help us. and in this case, i think we're going to have to look into whether we can challenge the legitimacy of the entire investigation. maybe a special prosecutor, special counsel never should have been appointed. not based on an illegal leak. not based on a southwest facts that g -- set of facts that go back to, -- i'm shocked to hear that he this put a spy in the campaign of a major party candidate maybe two spies. you know i was a big part of that campaign. i'm trying to figure out who was the spy. now i'm wondering is it this person or that person or this person? now, if there's a spy, they
4:10 am
got nothing from it. look, they would be able to bring their case right now if the spy had any incriminating information. that spy should have been enough to tell them, these people were not talking to the russians. there was no collusion with the russians. abby: don't you need enough evidence to put a spy on someone to subpoena someone in there are still a lot of questions as to the evidence that ultimately led to this investigation? >> kind of like th "the big bang theory," right, a.b.y? >abby?they didn't have enough evidence to pit a spy. in you don't need enough evidence to put a spy in. to put one on the president of the united states it seems you better have it they don't have it because they don't have it now. look, if they had had a spy. if the spy got incriminating evidence, they would be able to wrap this investigation up. i wouldn't be sitting here. we would be dealing with whatever the aftermath of the investigation is. steve: all we know is they may have had somebody inside close to the campaign. but, so far. >> that would be the biggest scandal in the history of
4:11 am
this town, at least involving law enforcement. and i have -- there is no one that has more respect for the men and women of the fbi than i do. i mean, comey has put them through hell. he put them through this as well. really to clear the name of the fbi he should be prosecuted. and his friend mccabe who one of them is lying. i mean, they are now going at each other. one of them is lying. you can toss a coin to figure out which one. the president shouldn't have fired him? steve: let's see if any of this is addressed in the inspector general's report which should be out shortly. >> we are looking forward to that, guys. i will see you back in new york. abby: mayor, good to see you this morning. have a good day. brian: nice to get on early for us. abby: he was up late last night, too. jillian: president trump meeting with politicians opposed to california's sanctuary laws. the commander-in-chief praising the leaders for fighting against it. >> we cannot let this

4:47 am
side show. the real lawyer here is bob mueller. the real issue that the white house deals with is bob mueller. what's happening with michael cohen and with michael avenatti is a side show. this is not relevant to the trump presidency in any serious legal or political way. and so i have never seen somebody who is a side show get so much tv. abby: president every way when it comes to the stormy daniels situation. with your expertise would you advise him to do stay away or not touch this. >> ignore him. he is the side show. the only threat to the white house is bob mueller. that's a receding threat frankly because there is no evidence of collusion issue anywhere. focus on what's important and the things that are the side shows, let them be the side shows and probably the most painful thing for you will avenatti is to be treated as the side show he wants center ring. steve: he want the phone to keep ringing. brian: after north korea threatens to cancel historic summit between kim jong un

4:53 am
brush back or complaint from the north korean government. >> i think the first thing to remember is that this is a meeting that the north koreans asked for. this is not something that the united states or the president asked for north koreans asked south koreans to see if they could arrange it the south koreans came to the washington to deliver that message to the president personally. he accepted the meeting and we have been working on planning it ever since. the secretary of state before even he was confirmed when he was still the cia director and then as secretary of state mike pompeo has been there twice to try to set this up. if this meeting doesn't happen, it will be because the north koreans have changed their mind. it won't be because the united states or president trump has backed out. i have known for a fact the president wants to have this meeting. he thinks that this could be important. so, i think he is taking the right tact here which is, you know, to let everything play out and assume it's going to go forward and if they want to back out i knows he can do nothing to stop that is he not going to give anything extra to meeting they asked for.
4:54 am
brian: what other media outlets aren't pointing out the president says "we'll see." never says going to be a good suck sets. i hope some things will happen. we'll see. we will see what happens. very measured in his tweets since kim jong un has come back into talks. now, you point out that they never -- when you were at the white house, they never had a problem or demanded the end of military exercises. so this complaint comes off as insincere. >> it's actually exactly the opposite. when they first informed the south koreans they were interested in having a meeting, they said they don't object to the spring -- the routine exercises that the united states and south korea were going to hold in the spring. and that was one of the reasons the president was willing to accept the meeting is because he said, look, they are not asking for something unreasonable like we should cancel that exercise. now they are bringing this up after already having said they don't object. it's a little bit curious that they would bring up something that they had already said was fine with them and now try to treat it as if it was this new thing that they're worried about.
4:55 am
that is subjective. brian: only way it is cancelled or postponeside the meeting with south korea. that has been pushed back. south korea is going to work make sure there is no problem with ours in singapore june 12th. bring up a series of events. two meetings with mike pompeo the secretary of state when he was cia director. they come back with three hostages. the president says a few nice things. now all of a sudden there is a degree of panic. do you think there is something to the school of thought that maybe china is behind this? see something maybe getting out of control? they had that weird summit in china where he showed up and they went to the beach? i'm wondering if something's there. >> i doubt it my own read is that china probably wants this meeting to happen because china wants to see tensions on the core reason peninsula reduced. so they -- i think they, the chinese, you know, who are the north koreans really only ally. they are responsible for about 90% of all trade with north korea. they are north koreans biggest backers. my take is that china probably wants the meeting to happen. so, i think if anything,
4:56 am
that, you know, they would probably be encouraging kim to go through with it because they want to see tensions reduced. they want to see, you know, more calm on the korean peninsula. so, it's very curious to know what's going on. probably what's happening is kim and the people around him think that maybe this is time that they can try to get something from the united states, extract something from the united states. see if the president wants the meeting so much he is willing to give up something to make sure that it happens. this is a test, perhaps, for the president. brian: mike, for you to be able to reach over, glance down and shut off that phone while not breaking stride is a wonder for all to look over. to say good job shutting off your ringer. michael anton, thanks so much. it's kind of interesting. i appreciate you joining us. if you are at the white house you are watching the white house cheer for hamas and then kind of salute kim jong un for pushing back on the president. that's how twisted things are in america's media today. huge hour ahead. kellyanne conway will be joining us live on the

5:07 am
informant may be. i don't know carter page or george papadopoulos, if some somebody find a picture i was in a room with george papadopoulos, 100 people again i was campaign manager for winning part of the campaign. i saw carter page on a different network tell the anchor i never met kellyanne conway. i don't know these two people. looks like they had some very tangentialal involvement with the campaign earlier on. maybe this happened then but i think that is very important to note which is, when the campaign team and structure changed and expanded in august, due to the president making his own decisions then, i mean the president offered me the campaign manager job, two of us together, august 12th it, was a friday. it was announced next wednesday. he hired somebody else in between that. if this happened to happen earlier on, if you're talking about page and papadopoulos, this is very important because this whole idea we're all there

5:09 am
suppose south korea what you're doing together. i saw this morning north korea put out a statement, they have a problem with south korea's leadership. we'll continue to monitor that. and the president, you know very much likes the fact that based on his leadership that and his team, including secretary of state pompeo going over there two times, that north korea has already suspended some of their exercises. but this president made very clear, denuclearizing the korean peninsula is in everybody's best interests. brian: kellyanne, i understand they have not reached formally out to you guys. north korea has not formally reached out, registered any complaints about john bolton's words or about military exercises. all this has been done through the media. is that correct? >> well i say this about that since i will not confirm or deny that. i will tell you this so much is litigated in media and gets repeated and retweeted without
5:10 am
verification. some people call it fake news. i refer to it uninformed conjecture, speculation. it is dangerous, because people think speculative opinion, wishful thinking, conclusions in search of evidence somehow rise to the level of facts. you're always talking about facts. they should think twice about that. litigating to the media, talking about something significant as, sensitive as possible summit between north korea, south korea, the united states of america but that is conjecture. look, what ambassador bolton has said, what sarah sanders has said, we're monitoring the situation but we want to verify what is fact and what is fiction before we run out to state that. i will leave that to the president and national security team if there is announcement to be made. abby: you said earlier this week there would be changes in the white house regarding the leaks challenges you faced. what is the latest, update on the leaking coming from the white house? >> people looking last week were

5:12 am
are, what we know and can be made publicly available we do. that is the point of me standing here. steve: sure. >> that is so much most of what goes on here what is known to us is not known to people on the outside and i think that is incredibly important to note also. think about the things that did not leak. the first lady's procedure earlier this week. thank god she's fine. mr. pompeo going to north korea over easter. the guests, the first lady's guests at state of the union. there were many never leaked. eight or 10 of us knew that. there are again, you have to look at the absence of harmful leaks but there are many people who nobody knows who they are because they are not, they're not household names perhaps, they're not public faces in the administration. they have access to information also. i think, but taking a broader look at that also but the president also wants me to make very clear to all of you, that he knows a lot of this is made up also. that speaking of, if you're going to speculate and bloviate
5:13 am
about north korea and what may or may not be true you are certainly going to speculate about leaks. but let me make very clear, most of the stories this week were about the process of leaks, not the fruits of those leaks. there are tighter, smaller meetings. that is very helpful to this president promoting his agenda. abby: kellyanne, good to see you. have a great day. >> thanks. brian: 13 minutes after the hour, we now know what millenials don't like about president trump. even this is outrageous. >> would you rather date a trump supporter or convicted felon? >> a convicted felon. >> felon? felon. >> convicted felon. 100%. brian: seriously? abby: wow. brian: plus governor mike huckabee. abby: that can't be real. brian: just got back israel after the dedication of the u.s. embassy. he will join us live.
